Large furled solid copper purple leaves with a deeply fingered elaborate filigree edge--appropriately named for the Maui volcano noted for its watery cascades eroding extremely deep valleys. Very unique selection with a distinct urge to grow ever upward--modest pinching of tips assures a wide dramatic show of incredible foliage. Must have sun, strong fertilizer and adequate moisture (while perfectly drained) and constant warmth to maintain its breathtaking appearance.
|Cultural Code||TGH HP|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
